SDMA Arts Education Council members only

Members of the Arts Education Council are invited for a private docent tour at the Mingei, to see an exhibition of approximately 40 kantha—a term used across the Indian subcontinent to denote decorative stitched quilting made from recycled sari. Most often given as a token of love, to daughters on the occasion of their marriage, or as a gift for a newborn child or grown son, they can be the work of two or more generations in one family, thus they are treasured as family heirlooms.

Sponsored by the Arts Education Council
